NLEOMF's Officers of the Month

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) has honored some of the nation's bravest and most dedicated officers through its Officer of the Month program. Officers of the month are nominated by their supervisors, and then the nominees are reviewed by the NLEOMF staff. Nominations that make the cut receive consideration from a select committee of NLEOMF board members. Last year POLICE Magazine became official media sponsor for the Officer of the Month program. We have been publishing detailed stories of the officers who have received this honor in print, since June 2010. View this gallery for photos and capsule summaries of the honorees.
